Frequently Asked Questions

Q - How does the free electricity offer work?

In very simple terms, you allow us to install our wind turbine on your land, in return you can use the electricity it produces at no cost. To see the details of the offer click here.

Q - Am I eligible for the offer?

This will depend on several factors, primarily the average wind speed for your area, planning constraints and connection to the electricity grid. See our is my land suitable page for more details.

Q - How much will it cost me?

You my incur some costs if you decide to engage a solicitor to act on your behalf. Occasionally lenders charge an admin fee for granting permission for the lease, but other than that we will cover the cost of planning permission, installation, on going maintenance and insurance.

Q - How much money will it save me?

This will depend on many factors such as your electricity useage pattern and is difficult to predict. We can offer advice to help you get the most use out of the generated electricity.

Q - What about planning permission?

Planning permission will be required for each turbine, our experienced team deal with the planning process from start to finish.

Q - Will I still have electricity in a power cut?

No, the turbine will shutdown and disconnect from the electricity supply. This is a safety feature to protect workers that may be working on repairing the power lines.

Q - What is an MPAN?

An MPAN is a Meter Point Administration Number, see our what is an MPAN guide.

Q - Are they noisy?

All wind turbines are designed to minimise noise levels. While the models we use are considered to be quiet turbines they can not be considered to be silent. This is why we look carefully at the siting of the turbine to ensure we meet the planning requirements with regard to noise levels.

Q - How much land do they need?

Ideally, stand-alone turbines should be sited as far away as possible from buildings or trees, which may block the wind and cause turbulence. As a guide, the wind turbine should be about twice the height of obstructions in the immediate front of it (for at least the prevailing wind direction). In general, the turbine should be above the height of nearby obstructions that are within a distance of 30 to 60ft of the tower heights.
